I have a really lovely multitasking device. Right now it is heating my home, evaporating sap for maple syrup, dehumidifying my basement (sap makes it humid) and drying my clothes. Hopefully we can plumb it into our water system and use it as a water heater this year.
Woodstoves are beautiful things
Meanwhile, in the news:
WASHINGTON -- Matt Simmons sounds the alarm like the Cassandra of the oil industry, warning that crude production has peaked and that looming energy shortages could derail global growth and even spark armed conflict.
Interesting that they should refer to Matt Simmons as Cassandra. She was cursed to accuracy, but never to be believed.
Yup, I love my woodstove.
